Former Student Makes Me Think

Brittany made this comment in response to Small School Unintentional Tracking and it really got me thinking:
Students are definitely placed on a gradient that determines how they are viewed academically by the teachers (and perhaps themselves)
Who is resposible for what level of class a student is placed into: the student, the teacher, the parents or someone else?

What effect does the level of class have on a students performance? Do students try harder in certain classes?

Do teachers view students of different levels as better or worse than others?
